As a service to our community, Lane Arts Council provides fiscal sponsorship for organizations, groups, and individuals working in the arts.

Many individuals or groups engage in great arts projects without becoming tax-exempt nonprofit organizations. However, these projects often are not eligible to receive charitable gifts, grants or sponsorships. In addition, they may not have the infrastructure (e.g. people, bank accounts, bookkeeping, central mailing address, etc.) needed to be successful. As a fiscal sponsor, Lane Arts Council can help with those issues. Fiscal sponsorship is a legal arrangement through which Lane Arts Council can accept tax-deductible contributions and other revenue to support arts projects that are not tax exempt.
